Month: September 2016



The Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine offers a monthly colloquium series on an aspect of Occupational or Environmental Medicine. We bring in speakers on the first Monday of each month to lecture from noon to 1:30. These events are CME events, so your physical attendance and participation will qualify you for the CME credits.

If you can not make it to UConn Health to attend the lecture in person, we do broadcast it using Occupational Medicine Colloquium Archives. You can find an archive of some of our previous speakers there.

Our next lecture will take place on Wednesday, March 7, 2018,  in the Low Learning Center. The lecture will start at noon, but refreshments will be provided before the lecture starts. It will run to approximately 1:30 p.m. to allow for time to discussion and questions after the presentation. Information on this lecture is below. This will be a extended lecture, and will count for a 1 hour CME session.

Speakers: Dr. Mathew Grant, M.D.

Topic: “Travel Medicine Update”
